Parylene Masking: Materials and Methods

Posted by Sean Horn on Fri, Jan 6, 2017

Parylene deposition takes place at the molecular level.  Applied at room temperature through CVD processing, the typical thickness of parylene conformal film is in the microns-range. Advantages of parylene coatings include: Excellent material properties, adhering to a wide range of substrate surfaces, biocompatibility, chemical/corrosion resistance, reliable dielectric performance and thermal sta

What is the right conformal coating for LEDs?

Posted by Sean Horn on Thu, Jun 21, 2012

Light emitting diodes (LEDs) are a huge and growing even bigger segment of the electronics industry.  LEDs are expanding into environments that demand a higher level of protection in order for the LED to function properly.  One way to get this level of protection is by using conformal coating.

Automated Conformal Coating Spray Robot Issues

Posted by Sean Horn on Fri, Jun 1, 2012

There are many benefits to using a spray robot for conformal coating.  As always, there are some potential issues that need to be addressed prior to committing to a spray robot such as the MACCS 400. One potential issue with considering selective conformal coating with a robotic conformal coating system is misaligned components on the […]
